Legal Transcripts

Legal professionals are juggling a constant stream of audio recordings for cases and hearings. Accurately transcribed audio and video are essential to the expediency and understanding of the case. When these files are readily accessible, the best tools for presenting evidence on time are available to you and your client.

Top 4 Reasons To Professionally Transcribe That Help You And Your Client Win

  • When presented with audio recordings of a legal proceeding, it’s important to have the verbatim text of those recordings. In fact, there are very specific rules that govern legal transcripts. For example, all sounds must be included in the transcript, and filler words must be included. A legal transcriptionist has experience with multiple-voice recordings, as well as knowledge of the specific legal jargon.The FFTranscription process goes many steps beyond the transcript itself to include optional speaker identification and timestamps, proofreading, and additional quality checking to ensure the most consistent and accurate results.
  • Formatted for Attorneys. Text is significantly easier to work with than audio files, allows you to easily pinpoint facts, and provides faster and more precise alternatives for review, note taking and highlighting. The more documentation and support available, and the less challenging it is to locate the information, the better equipped you will be to deliver the findings of the case properly and accurately, and prepare the avenue of defense or attack.Video/audio evidence and testimony presented in court may be reinforced with transcripts for the judge and jury, to clarify and reduce the risk of misheard audio.
  • Appeals. A legal transcript is critical to reviewing the first trial and preparing for an appeal. Trial transcripts streamline the appellate process, and may be required for an appeal to be granted.
  • Organization and Productivity. It’s simple, but important. When it comes to organizing all of your documents, evidence, and arguments, you need to be able to quickly search and locate targeted information. By having transcripts readily available, with timestamps and speaker ID, you’ll be a step ahead of the game. While audio recordings may not be accessible to everyone, text may easily be shared via multiple devices and formats.Although a staff member can transcribe files for you, the results may be highly inconsistent and result in higher productivity costs. Outsourcing your transcription to an automated transcription service is far too unreliable for the legal profession. Engage the most accurate and effective human transcription with high touch, quality assured results, in as little as 24 to 48 hours.
